Local attraction has been in the area forever but grounds are very clean and well kept .Lots of local lore and old collections of fishing equipment .A tribute to men and women that have made an impact in the fishing word

We drove to the Fishing Hall of Fame, but didn't go in since they charged $7 per person and for 8 people, that would have added up very fast. Disappointing that they didn't have a family rate.

This structure is HUGE! Inside this Musky structure are all kinds of fishing related items. You also have a great view of the nearby Hayward Lake from the open Musky's open mouth with teeth. This structure is surrounded by a small park for kids with other fish structures. This attraction is rather famous, so you get bragging rights if you visit. Is it worth it? Depends on your interest in this fishing, and how much you are willing to pay.

It rained all week we visited, so we wanted to be inside somewhere. We have known about this place forever, but wanted to take the kids, and a rainy day seemed to be a perfect day for it. We had a lot of fun and the kids got to stand in the mouth of the giant musky.

If you want to see a museum full of fishing memorabilia, this is your place. It takes you back to the 30's, 40's, and 50's to see what up north fishing was like. Nice displays with easy access. And of course, there's the BIG fish out front...you can walk up to the top (mouth) -- a good place for picture taking. A treasure for the traveler who wants to get away from the commercialism so common in resort communities.
